Fin­ley Hub link to com­mu­nity ser­vices

Southern Riverina news - - News -

One very im­por­tant ser­vice which many lo­cal res­i­dents may not be aware of is the Fin­ley Com­mu­nity Hub.

This is a new ser­vice pro­vided by In­tereach for Ber­ri­gan Shire res­i­dents and vis­i­tors.

Lo­cated in the Cen­tral Ar­cade in Fin­ley, the Hub pro­vides an in­for­ma­tion and re­fer­ral ser­vice to link com­mu­nity mem­bers with ser­vices, com­mu­nity groups and re­sources.

Belinda Rodgers is the Hub co-or­di­na­tor and can help with in­for­ma­tion and make con­tact with ser­vices as well as make ap­point­ments and as­sist with fill­ing out forms when re­quired.

Com­puter and in­ter­net fa­cil­i­ties are avail­able for use by the com­mu­nity and meet­ing space is also pro­vided for lo­cal groups and vis­it­ing ser­vices.

An­other as­pect of the Hub is the pro­vi­sion to or­gan­ise short learn­ing and life skills pro­grams such as healthy cook­ing, bud­get­ing and com­puter skills.

Belinda would also wel­come ideas for other pro­grams to suit com­mu­nity needs.

The Fin­ley Com­mu­nity Hub is an ac­cess point for the Rive­rina Mur­ray Com­mon­wealth Respite and Care­link Cen­tre which pro­vides in­for­ma­tion and ad­vice about aged care, dis­abil­ity and carer sup­port ser­vices.

Fur­ther in­for­ma­tion can be ob­tained by call­ing into the Hub or by con­tact­ing Belinda on 03 5890 6200 or email be­lin­[email protected]­tereach.com.au

Win­ner of the Fin­ley Lions Club wood raf­fle on Satur­day was Peter Mar­aldo.

The Fin­ley Bowl­ing Club’s Australia’s Big­gest Morn­ing Tea day proved very suc­cess­ful last week and the or­gan- is­ers would like to thank all those who par­tic­i­pated in the event.

Spe­cial thanks must go to the many lo­cal busi­nesses who do­nated vouch­ers.

The fi­nan­cial out­come for the day was slightly up on last year with the amount of $611 to be for­warded to the Can­cer Coun­cil.

Win­ners of the vouch­ers on the day were Lyn Donkin – Daisy Maes; Di Re­tal­lick - Red Teapot; Fin­ley Dawes - Hong Loch Chi­nese Res­tau­rant; Heather Tabe - Out­door & More; Joyce Yeo - Fin­ley Phar­macy; Elsie Fair­bairn - Ash­ley Haynes Butch­ers; Elaine Chap­lin - Mur­ray Hut.

The auc­tion which took place later in the af­ter­noon was hotly con­tested and auc­tion­eers Nola Wood and Sue Hip­well could be a threat to Greg McNa­mara!

Fin­ley Farm­ers’ Mar- ket is on again this Satur­day. This is al­ways a good so­cial morn­ing out as well as the op­por­tu­nity to pur­chase fresh lo­cal pro­duce.

En­ter­tain­ment will be pro­vided by Jes­sica Casanova and Brooke Morham. With home games of Fin­ley Foot­ball and Net­ball Club this week­end it is ex­pected that many vis­i­tors to the town will take ad­van­tage of this.

The or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee would like to thank the many vol­un­teers as well as the com­mu­nity groups who in­ter­act with the mar­ket.

For those who would like to con­duct a stall at the mar­ket, ar­range­ments can be made by con­tact­ing the co­or­di­na­tor on 0466 966 150 or email fin­ley­farm­ers­mar­[email protected]­ley.org.au

The Fin­ley Hospi­tal Aux­il­iary Op­por­tu­nity Shop is get­ting ready to move into the ex­ten­sion of their ex­ist­ing build­ing which has been funded by a grant from the Rive­rina Red Gum Fund­ing.

To have the floor re­newed in the ex­ist­ing build­ing, they are mov­ing all stock into the new area when it is com­pleted.

To help with this enor­mous task the vol­un­teers are hav­ing a Clear­ance Sale of ex­cess stock at $5 for a large bag.

Save your Life BOWELSCAN is now avail­able in lo­cal chemists in Fin­ley, Ber­ri­gan, Jer­ilderie and Tocumwal.

The bowl can­cer aware­ness pro­gram is $10 at chemists which in­cludes the cost of test­ing and no­ti­fi­ca­tion of re­sults.

Are you over 40? Then you should have a BOWELSCAN test ev­ery year! Act be­fore it’s too late!

The in­au­gu­ral muster of the Mur­ray River Ram­blers Car­a­van Club - held in Fin­ley at the week­end - brought many vis­i­tors to the town.

En­ter­tain­ment pro­vided by the or­gan­is­ing com­mit­tee, which in­cluded Col Bon­ney of Fin­ley Car­a­van Park, was well re­ceived.

Wet weather pre­vented some mem­bers from at­tend­ing, how­ever the open fire meet­ing place proved to be a pop­u­lar spot for the Happy Hour.

Car­a­van Club mem­bers were de­lighted with their suc­cess with the raf­fles when they at­tended the Fin­ley Bowl­ing Club on Fri­day evening.

Fin­ley Foot­ball and Net­ball Club was the or­gan­i­sa­tion who ben­e­fited fi­nan­cially from pro­ceeds of the raf­fles.

The Fin­ley Film So­ci­ety will be hold­ing its first meet­ing at the Fin­ley town li­brary at 7pm this Thurs­day night.

The group will be show­ing the movie Mary and Max. Please con­tact Kieran Davis for any fur­ther in­for­ma­tion on 5883 2835.
